Ascent Trip ReportThe road was completely impassable just 1 mile onto the Santa Barbara Canyon Road, almost 4 miles from the normal starting gate. Be prepared for an extra 8 miles, making for a 40 mile round trip. Was quite warm, temps a bit over 90 when we got back to the car. As for the ride/hike itself, it sucked to have to push the bike up the majority of the ascent, with a few miles of decent riding. Left the bikes just past the Malduce trail turnoff since the road gets pretty bad and riding down from this point wasn't really possible. But the ride back on bike was great, this was my first mountain biking experience and what a way to travel. Only a couple minor uphill sections from Malduce back to the starting location. TR is HERE.
